Olive & Annie

Fair-trade apparel and accessories for women and children.
Olive & Annie creates fair-trade apparel and accessories for women and children. Every purchase supports our initiatives to support orphaned and abandoned children and end sexual violence in East Africa. INSPIRATION Our story begins with two little girls named Olive & Annie. Olive and Annie were born in Mathare slum in Nairobi, Kenya. They come from different mothers, yet their stories are one in the same. Olive — a beautiful 5 year old girl. Her smile can light up the room. Her mother was an addict. She is the second born of 3 children. Abandoned in Mathare and found a forever family at Zawadi la Tumaini Children’s Home. Annie — a quiet 4 year old girl. Annie is timid and reserved but when she loves, she loves fiercely. She feels so deeply. Her mother was an addict, she continues to work on her journey to recovery. She is the second born of 3 children. Annie witnessed her mother being attacked in Mathare and lived on the streets, often having to fend for herself. She found a safe home at Zawadi la Tumaini Children’s Home in 2016 and has since found peace and comfort in her new family. Two young girls. Two different stories. Both girls found their forever home at Zawadi la Tumaini Children’s Home and in turn regained hope for the future. THE IDEA Our products are produced with love from our artisans in Kenya to your homes around the world. Each purchase provides funding for programs which will be implemented in 2017 / 2018 to provide mentorship, sexual health education, support and healing, and empowerment programs to youth in urban settlements in Kenya in an effort to minimize sexual violence. In addition Olive & Annie supports Zawadi la Tumaini Children’s Home, assisting with their orphan care and advocacy programs. Olive & Annie creates unique products for children and women, designed to bring complete customer satisfaction – an ethical, handcrafted product line that supports orphaned children and mentors and educates youth to end sexual violence.
